CBT test Liverpool

If you’re looking to take your CBT test in Liverpool let RideTo do all the work for you. We’ve got two schools in the Liverpool area which we know will provide you with a great level of training to get you out on the road and riding with confidence. Once you’ve decided which location you want to go to you can book your day of training quickly and simply in Liverpool.

The first of our two training centres in Liverpool is Aprilia Merseyside, based in Wallasey. The school is located away from the centre of Liverpool, which means quieter roads and an easier time for you during the road riding portion of your CBT Test. The staff at Aprilia Merseyside are extremely knowledgeable and the school offers a wide selection of bikes for you to ride on the day.

Hotwheelz Motorcycle Training are a long established training school based in Prenton who pride themselves on their friendly atmosphere. Their former students love them too - they’ve got 68 five star ratings on our website - not bad! Much like Aprilia Merseyside, they’re based away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, so you won’t have to worry about traffic on your road ride.

While both schools are located outside the centre of Liverpool, they’re still easy to get to. If you’re travelling from Chester or Ellesmere Port then they’re both located close to the M53.


What can I ride with a CBT?

Once you complete our Compulsory Basic Training, you will receive your CBT certificate, which will allow you to ride on the road on L-plates using your provisional licence for up to two years. If after the two years you wish to continue riding without upgrading to a full motorcycle licence you will have to retake your CBT.

If you take your CBT at the age of 16 then you’ll only be allowed to ride a scooter or motorcycle with a maximum capacity of 50cc and a restricted top speed of 30mph. There are 50cc motorcycles available, but most people opt for a scooter due to the practicality and ease of use.

Once you turn 17 you can then ride a machine with a maximum capacity of 125cc. The top speed is no longer limited, but a motorcycle or scooter with a 125cc engine will only go so fast! But don’t worry, most modern 125s can keep up with traffic on national speed limit roads.

If you choose to take your driving test in an automatic car, then you will only be qualified to drive automatic cars on the road, but that’s not the case with the CBT. On the day you’ll be given the choice of riding an automatic scooter or a manual motorcycle. Which one you choose is entirely up to you, but we recommend choosing whichever it is you’re going to be riding once you’ve completed your CBT. It doesn’t make much sense spending a day learning to ride a manual motorcycle when you’re going to spend the next two years riding a twist ‘n’ go scooter. Still unsure? Check out our in-depth comparison between learning on an auto or manual.
